Friendly staff, classic, warm Santa Fe decor and two blocks from the plaza - what's not to like? SW breakfast buffet and tea or sherry in the afternoon complete the welcoming and comfortable experience. We'll be back here each time we visit Santa Fe.

This motel is just a couple of blocks from the main plaza in Santa Fe. They have free parking in a sometimes crowded parking lot. The breakfast spread is fabulous! Lots of choices, and something different every day. The sherry/tea in the afternoon is also very popular. We spent several days here and were impressed with the efficiency of the... More

We returned to the Inn of the Governors in February - this probably was our fifth or sixth stay. It continues to be a place we look forward to every year. We booked a superior king. It's spacious, comfortable and quiet. The wood burning fireplace is a great extra - adds to the ambience. Breakfast, as usual, is substantial and... More

A friend told us that the Inn is really a motel. Strictly speaking he was right. It is a large, multi-building structure, furnished in a New Mexico style, if there is such a thing. Very good service and the extras (good buffet breakfast, afternoon sherry, bar voucher, etc.) were welcome. There is ample parking and Santa Fe's main square, the... More

This is a great hotel and a great value considering the historic city location. This is an older hotel although they have kept it completely updated. Breakfast and/or food vouchers are included if you book through the hotel web site. The also have a complementary Sherry and tea hour in the afternoon. Many of the rooms have small fireplaces.

It is really fun to encounter more then you expected. The service, restaurant, location and room was excellant. The parking is a little close but worked out for us. The food and service at the restaurant ensured that we will return.

Just spent 3 nights at the wonderful Inn of the Governors. The location is perfect walking distance to both the Plaza and Canyon Road. Rooms were comfortable and cozy and the buffet breakfast was outstanding. The Sherry and tea hour at 4:00 was a great way to relax from a day of sightseeing and meet fellow guests. Nice small pool...

Perfect location in walking distance to discover Santa Fe. Stayed in room 202 which was a great experience. Nice junior suite and quiet. Very welcoming and helping staff, reception as restaurant. Enjoyed the heated swimming every day. Best breakfast during my New Mexico trip. Not to forget the drinks offered in the afternoon, 4 - 5 pm, in the lobby... More

Very nice hotel walkable to the plaza. I stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Be careful the hashbrowns have a kick! I stayed in 106, not in the main building, my only cons are the heating/cooling system did not have a fan and the room would be stuffy and warm if you didn't open the... More
